Most nights we have a meat already prepared as well as a salad, but what makes a suitable side for a Keto Dinner?
Any non-starchy veggie would work, so I usually scour Pinterest until I come up with a recipe that will work for the veggie I happen to have on hand, which in this case is zucchini!
We all probably get tired of broccoli, and besides, it’s already in my salad, so I would like a change, please. 🙂 Enter zucchini noodles mac and cheese! I found this recipe through Kirbie’s Cravings on Pinterest and I’m betting it’s a winner winner chicken dinner!
I will link to the recipe below, but first, I wanted to talk about some other sides we have had in the past. How about seasoned and buttered Brussels Sprouts? Even better with bacon!
I tend to want sweet potatoes…a lot, yet they aren’t actually low carb (still good for you) so they are a sometimes cheat. Just one cup of sweet potatoes has 27g of carbs!!! However, the nutrition they provide just can’t be beat. So, I eat them from time to time.
Another great choice is asparagus, which is also good wrapped in bacon, lol! See a trend here? 🙂 I have done a post on the best low carb veggies here, so just grab any one off the list, add some butter, spices, and of course, bacon when appropriate!
Be like me and scour Pinterest Keto boards for more inspiration. Here is the recipe for the zucchini mac and cheese-just click the image!
Of course, there have been nights all we did was add some slices of salted avocado to our plates along with our meat and a salad of some sort. Most nights, however, the avocado is already in my salad. (my salads are more like a meal) 🙂
What are your favorite side dishes? Do you like quick and easy, or do you tend to go all out and be a true chef in the kitchen? I’d love to hear your thoughts, ideas, or share a recipe!
